Remote Learning & Covid Secure Operations

We are operating in a world where it is becoming a regular and normal occurrence for pupils to be sent home to self-isolate.  It is expected that this will occur repeatedly through the year.  It may be an individual pupil who has to self-isolate, a year group bubble or, at worst, the whole school with the possible exception of key workers.

It is important therefore that we have clear plans for supporting pupils and their families and for enabling them to continue with their education as best as possible.  We need to try to replicate as much of the curriculum that is taking place at school at home whilst they are absent.  We also need to provide emotional and mental health support to help children and families cope with the strains of isolation and home learning.  Ideally, children should return to school following their period of isolation and, with minimal support, be able to slot straight back into the sequence of learning within their class.

Aims
  • To provide access to learning from the 1st or 2nd day following notification of absence
  • To provide lessons and activities which replicate learning that is happening within school each day.
  • To provide regular telephone contact between home and school to support with technical assistance, learning activities and emotional well-being
  • To facilitate children slotting straight back into school with minimal gaps in their learning arising from their absence
